Did I buy a misprinted t-shirt?

I used some money I got for Christmas to buy myself two GW2 t-shirts. In case it's relevant I got them from Amazon rather than that Fan Forge site (because I'm in the UK and the postage on there is nearly as much as the t-shirts). One is exactly what I was expecting, the other is...somewhat disappointing.

Here's the Ranger t-shirt on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07HFW1TW9/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&customId=B07537X499&psc=1

And here, in an admittedly not great photo, is what I got:

The picture appears to be much smaller than in the preview image, and seems to be missing a lot of the green 'smoke' effect around the edges. The quality isn't great either, it looks and feels like one of those iron-on prints for DIY t-shirts rather than a professional job.

Compare that to the other one I bought, also from Amazon, at the same time:

This is much more what I expected. The image isn't massive, but isn't tiny either (and bearing in mind these are women's t-shirts you don't want the image to go too far to either side or it looks a bit...distorted, even on me) it feels smoother with less noticable edges around the print and even the faint, whispy parts are clearly visible.

Has anyone else here bought any of these t-shirts, particularly the ranger one or other profession images? Do they all look like this or did I get a badly printed one? Do you think it's worth asking Amazon for a replacement, or should I just get a refund?

    It looks like a misprint to me- looks washed out and not as big as the one shown on Amazon.

    It looks washed out because the picture is glossy plastic and the lighting was terrible when I took it. The colour is ok, it's just tiny and looks like I could peel it off, or it would fall off after a few hot washes.

    I'm surprised no one has replied to say they've got one of these t-shirts, I honestly thought they were more popular based on the number of designs which keep getting created. But since I don't know if they're all like this I think I'll just get it refunded rather than risk getting a replacement which turns out to be just as bad.
